Entity Extraction: From Unstructured Text to DBpedia RDF triples

In this paper, we describe an end-to-end system that automatically extracts RDF triples describing entity relations and properties from unstructured text. This system is based on a pipeline of text processing modules that includes a semantic parser and a coreference solver. By using coreference chains, we group entity actions and properties described in different sentences and convert them into entity triples. We applied our system to over 114,000 Wikipedia articles and we could extract more than 1,000,000 triples. Using an ontology-mapping system that we bootstrapped using existing DBpedia triples, we mapped 189,000 extracted triples onto the DBpedia namespace. These extracted entities are available online in the N-Triple format.


An archive of extracted entities in N3 format is available: entities.zip
